A THOUSAND HORSES TAPPED TO PERFORM ON THE 2011 SIMPLE MAN CRUISE HOSTED BY LYNYRD SKYNYRD

 

NEW YORK, Jan. 4, 2011  -- Nashville, Tennessee quintet A Thousand Horses set out on tour this January in support of their self-titled EP out now on DCG/Interscope/Vanhowes Records.  The band will support Truth & Salvage Co. on the ten city tour commencing on January 12th in Charleston, SC. A Thousand Horses also performs on the 2011 Simple Man cruise -- the ultimate southern rock & rebel party on the open seas, sailing from Tampa to Grand CaymanJanuary 20-24th on the Carnival Inspiration along with Lynryd Skynyrd, Blackberry Smoke and Black Stone Cherry among others.

Recorded in six days in Silver Lake, CA with producer Dave Cobb at his home-built 1974 Studios, the band was determined to capture their music in a live setting, straight to tape, with everyone in the same room. The result is a five-track introduction to the band's unabashed brand of riff-driven rock and roll.  

"We tracked it all live. Some of the songs on it are from just first or second takes," says singer Michael Hobby. "We used vintage gear. We used things that we like.  That's what we wanted to make: a live, raw, real record and when people come to see us play, they'll find out that we didn't give 'em something that we can't deliver."

Comprised of lead singer Hobby, the band's lineup is rounded out by Bill Satcher (lead guitar), Graham Deloach (bass backing vocal), Zach Brown (guitar, backing vocal), and Shane Lenzen (drums).

Lead single, title track, and band namesake "A Thousand Horses" also features Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson.

A Thousand Horses EP is out now.
